Canada Women defeated the USA 37-10 to sweep the two-game CAN/AM series. The win also tied up this North American rivalry at 18 wins apiece. The match marked the 30th anniversary of the competition.
The Canadians, who won the first game last Tuesday 39-5, dominated play, especially the scrum. In the two contests, the Maple Leafs outscored the Eagles 76-15.
The series represents the last tune up matches for the USA before this summer’s Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland (Pool play in Dublin, and final games in Belfast) during mid-August.
The superior Canadians, ranked third by World Rugby, finished second to England in 2014’s WRWC. They have a good chance to medal again with the main competition coming from New Zealand and England, but Ireland and France also seek upset chances.
The Eagles will have to be content with three more international sevens events (Japan, Canada, and France) for the crossover sevens players who also compete in fifteens.
Canada Women will prepare for a tournament in New Zealand in June when they meet the number one ranked Black Ferns, Australia, and second rated England.
